Harriet Harman calls for the PM to act over Jeremy Hunt

Deputy leader of the Labour Party, Harriet Harman, has called for David Cameron to take action in the row involving Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt, and whether he breached ministerial rules in News Corporation's planned takeover of BSkyB.

Mr Hunt has pledged to hand in all correspondence with his special adviser over the takeover bid to the Leveson Inquiry.

But Ms Harman said it was not good enough for Mr Cameron to leave the matter to Lord Leveson and that he ''can't shirk his responsibilities as prime minister''.
